Martín Ramírez : the last works by Brooke Davis Anderson( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brooke Davis Anderson describes the moment as a "curator's dream come true." In 2007 a collection of more than 130 works on paper by Martín Ramírez surfaced, all created in the early 1960s, just before his death in 1963. Until this discovery, Ramírez's known oeuvre consisted of about 300 drawings and collages. These "last works" shine new light on an artist now revered as one of the self-taught masters of the twentieth century. Martín Ramírez (1895-1963) immigrated to the United States from his native Mexico at the age of thirty. Diagnosed with mental illness soon after, Ramírez would spend the second half of his life in mental institutions. It was at DeWitt State Hospital in Northern California that Ramírez began exhibiting a remarkable drive for artistic expression, creating drawings with any material he could find, including paper bags, wooden matchsticks, and a paste he made from saliva and mashed potatoes. Ramírez's work illuminates the struggle of an artist trapped between two worlds, blending memories of Mexico with the experience of poverty and alienation in America. As Anderson writes, "each drawing became a beguiling act of documenting and, ultimately, sharing a life lived." Martín Ramírez: The Last Works invites viewers to witness Ramírez's artistic development through his bold lines, meticulous repetition, and creative variations of idiosyncratic themes. With essays by Brooke Davis Anderson, Richard Rodriguez, and Wayne Thiebaud and a foreword by the family of Martín Ramírez, this book celebrates the genius of a once-dismissed yet truly extraordinary artist."--Publisher's description

Darling : a spiritual autobiography by Richard Rodriguez( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this memoir the author examines international religious violence, growing public atheism in the West, and his religious rejection for his homosexuality, moving from Jerusalem to Silicon Valley, from Moses to Liberace, from Lance Armstrong to Mother Teresa. He considers his relationship to the God of the desert, and to terrorists who kill in the name of God. He is a homosexual who writes with love of the religions of the desert that exclude him. He is a passionate, unorthodox Roman Catholic who is always mindful of his relationship to Judaism and Islam because of a shared belief in the God who revealed himself within an ecology of emptiness. And at the center of this book is a consideration of women, their importance to his spiritual formation and their centrality to the future of the desert religions. Here he binds these threads together into this wonderfully complex tapestry. -- From book jacket
